Peanut Butter Blossoms



These are one of Todd's favorite cookies and a common holiday dessert. I decided to go totally homemade with these this year instead of the bagged cookie mix. I got the recipe off the Hershey's website and just changed the shortening to butter. Totally worth it and just as simple!
